Nothing looks and feels quite as good as a fresh visit to the salon. Your hair is shiny and healthy, your hair has volume and movement, and you walk out of there feeling like a million bucks!
Being at home offers a great opportunity for you to take some tips from the experts and give yourself a salon blow-out look and feel right from the comfort of your own home. Here’s how!
Double conditioning may be new to you, but salon stylists have been using this technique as a “hair mask” for decades. When washing your hair, most people will apply shampoo first and then follow up with a conditioner - but this technique adds one extra step to your routine.
Instead of starting with shampoo, apply conditioner to your hair before washing, starting at your ends and working your way up. If you have oily hair, you’ll want to avoid your roots and stop your conditioning routine at your ears. Apply your conditioner first and let it sit in your hair for 2-5 minutes. Follow with your normal shampoo routine, and then add another bit of conditioner to your ends at the end. This will help deeply condition and nourish your hair and help fight breakage, dullness, and split ends. Salon experts agree that a double conditioning treatment to hair can improve the texture and look of stands just like a professional hair treatment can!
When you go to the salon, you will never see a hairstylist use heat or styling tools on your hair before adding a protecting serum or spray. Hairstylists know that if your hair isn’t protected, they will cause damage to your strands and leave you with breakage, burnt hair, and dull color.
Even if you are at home, styling your hair can add some normal to your routine and make you feel beautiful, even if it’s just for yourself. If you plan to use any heat like blow dryers, or styling tools like curlers or straighteners, make sure you’re protecting your hair with a hair serum first. Our Renewing Hair Serum will coat your hair to protect it from heat, while also adding ingredients like coconut oil and sunflower oil that will deeply condition your hair and repair any existing damage.
Are you guilty of washing your hair every day? Most salon experts will tell you that over-washing your hair, or washing it daily can lead to dryness, breakage, and unhealthy hair. Our hair produces natural oils that are important to maintain our best-looking hair. When you are shampooing too often, even with the safest of hair care products, it can break your strands down and cause more harm than good.
Instead of washing every day, try to limit your hair washing to once every few days. If your hair is thicker and curly, this might be easier to do. If you have normal or thin hair, you can opt for our non-aerosol Dry Shampoo which can help add volume and keep hair clean between washes. Dry shampoo can be used on any hair type and can even be added to the hair to help with styling. It will allow your hair to look, smell, and feel fresh while giving your hair a break between washes.
